The Table

The Universe is always speaking to us, sending us little messages, causing coincidences and serendipities, reminding us to stop, to look around, to believe in something else, something more.

  –  Nancy Thayer

The Universe doesn’t answer questions, it simply gives you signs.

  –  Lukas Boyer

When we are paying attention we do get the signs and boy did I get signs while I was in Canada!!!

The Universe doesn’t answer your questions it gives you signs.

IF you are paying attention that is!! 🙂

What I noticed from travelling recently seeing the majority of people plugged into their phones constantly so that they would not probably recognize a sign as they truly aren’t paying attention or present in the moment.

I have nothing against phones  – check in with yourself how often you are truly on or checking your phone – it may surprise you!!

So……

On my trip back to Canada – while on the Sunshine Coast, my friend had a little bit of work to do up the coast in a small town – I didn’t really want to go yet something told me to go (aka I got out of my head and listened to my guidance)

 

Just before we got to the little town, Sandra pulled over off the highway in a little turn off – it was on a lake and she knew there was a cool chair there that someone had left  – she thought it would be neat prop for my series I am working on.

The Chair by the Lake

As we pulled over, we noticed an older wooden table and chairs and started laughing – oh now this could be interesting we said.

 

We shot a few photos then jumped back in the car – Sandra said wouldn’t it be cool if we found a vase and a couple of tea cups for the shot.

 

I said sure but all the stores will be closed as it’s Sunday (it is a little town after all).

 

Well we stopped at an art store that was open and I was looking around while Sandra went outside and went into the interesting misc store of odds and ends next door – a real old odd second hand store.

 

What did she find?

 

An old funky yellow glass vase.

 

Ok now for tea cups – I said the other second hand stores are not open (or stores).

 

As we were getting back into the car – a truck pulled up and out jumped a lady who went into the second hand store.  A couple of minutes later she came out, so Sandra jumped out of the car and went over and asked her if we could buy a couple of tea cups.

She said they weren’t open and she didn’t have a float.

Sandra explained what we wanted to do.

She replied with ‘Give me $5 for 2 tea cups ‘ and she disappeared in the store only to reappear 2 minutes later with 2 tea cups and saucers.

 

The deal was done.

The Tea Cups and Vase

 

We went back and took some shots.

 

Later that night as we were looking at the images, I said we should have done this or that to add some interesting perspectives – still good shots but could be better.

 

The next morning we got up and she said lets go back and see if everything is there.

 

So smart aleck me says – ok – if the 2 tea cups are still there then I am suppose to do this project and I will jump in and really start working on it.

 

Well low and behold as we approached not only was the table still there but also the 2 tea cups.

 

We laughed and Sandra said you forgot to say the vase as well.  Someone took the vase.

 

As I opened my door to get out of the car there laid a loonie (Canadian $1 coin).

 

I know a loonie isn’t much yet it was the second sign.

 

We started laughing.

 

Sandra said – I heard you set an intention with the Universe and it gave you the signs – I am going to hold your feet to the fire to do this project now.

 

No worries Sandra – this project is part of the joy of creating and combining Photography with Consciousness – 2 things I do love!!

 

So I leave you with this thought – where in your life are you not paying attention?

 

The Universe is always there, always listening and always guiding us IF we pay attention!!

It gives us signs, nudges, (or 2 by 4’s) and allows things to unfold easily.

Signs from the Universe often Become Mystical

 

Attracting Point

Attracting Point

 

www.jodiburke.com

Look at Nature – She Acts Unlimited!!

Think of yourself as a human magnet, constantly attracting what you speak, think AND feel.

  –  unknown

Us human beings are magnets, and as energy works in this U-niverse, we are continually attracting of like – like vibrations on many levels. Whatever or wherever our attracting point is  – is reflected back to us called our life.

Your physical body is charged through the emotional field AND is just a processor for emotions.

E – Motions is Energy in Motion and when it’s not the body is not at ease – DIS-ease and the body is 70% plus water – that is why we need lots of good alive water – not dead like what is sold in those cheap plastic bottles but live from the earth – spring water or you can bring water back to some life via structured water.

The mind is where we have our thoughts that are electrical – that is why we so need minerals – lots of minerals.

And thoughts are Energy too.

The heart is magnetic – it needs lots of Love starting with Self, love for what one does each and every moment, Joy and Gratitude.

Now what does this mean?

Everything is Energy – thoughts become things that is how energy changes form.

www.jodiburke.com

Get Creative!!

 

When we take care of the physical body with lots of water, mineral, love and Gratitude, we can think clearer,  know our purpose, our passions, as we feel good physically.  When we heal the emotions and allow unconditional love for self and others and forgiveness of any so called perceive mistakes in the past (usually means deeper inner work to release any old painful memories etc) and doing what we love to be doing, spending time with people we love, living life that includes doing what brings us joy, being fully present in the moment,  it’s then easily to be connected more with Source – or Spirit or God or the Field or – as you will be in a higher state of consciousness and all he higher vibrations are stepping in the direction of Creating Heaven on Earth – that is what was meant by that phrase.

And that is how you create an attracting point – Manifestation

Intention & Elevated Emotion leads to desire action which is an attracting point or a higher state of energy which is frequencies  – living in a way that is aligned with your highest vibration where peace, love & joy do exist!!

It is YOUR life right? If you aren’t creating it then who is??

Food for thought!

Being in Nature Being fully Present in the Moment & Doing what YOU Love to Do

 

‘To be what I all a ‘quality’ human being, one has to be transparently real and have the courage to be what he is.’

–  Bruce Lee

“So long as human beings stay human, death and life are the same thing.”

     –  George Orwell

‘We are not human beings trying to be spiritual.  WE are spiritual beings trying to be human.’

     –  Jacquelyn Small

www.jodiburke.com

Animals Know how to Be and Be in the Present

Human BEings – Harmonic Universe – different levels of frequencies. “hu” which means “God” in Arabic, so HUman is really GodMan……….read that again!! 🙂

BEings – not DOings……..which does not mean you do not do, it means how do you do or how do you be?.

BEing is a state of consciousness. What state of consciousness would you like to embody by BEing it or living it?

So that when you do, you are doing it from a higher state of consciousness, from joy, from love, from pure pleasure and gratitude not because you have to or should or because someone wants you to.

That is when you do out of true alignment to who you be – real, authentic and true – in what you say, feel, think, speak and do.

www.jodiburke.com

YOU are Creating Your Life with Each Decision Each Moment

The more we do that the more we embrace our truth of a higher form of Consciousness and will remember the Powerful Creators that we truly be.  The rest are just stories – though they seem real – but it’s because we are giving them our attention.

We are really good at keeping ourselves busy while being human beings – because we have bought in to this reality being so real – the dramas, busyness to not feel, to keep ourselves small, keep separation within and with all etc

The best place to start to shift that is spend some time in quietness, meditation or nature – barefoot in the grass is so grounding plus it gets you out of the head and more into the heart – that is your truth!!

What energies are you being today? Are they truly aligned with you, your desires and your Soul?

It all starts with you – Mantra for today is I am divine Self Love.

The Truth Will Set You Free

The Truth Will Set You Free

When You are Living Your Truth there is Much More Flow

 

The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.

–  Gloria Steinen

We must unlearn what we have learned because a conditioned mind cannot comprehend the infinite.

–  unknown

Universe doesn’t speak English – it speaks in frequencies as in vibes.

The first step of change is to become aware of your own BS – belief systems or bull shit – same thing really 🙂

There are no others out there – whatever you see outside is your own reflection – your mind is creating all of this – it’s a movie and you are the lead role – is it a blockbuster or nightmare?

The Universe has shaken me to awaken me – I saw that quote and it was so fitting.  When shit happens we can either become victims or dive deep within to see what’s really going on and to clear the beliefs, patterns, programs so the real You can emerge.

It’s so worth it when you move through it – as the real You that has been covered up starts to emerge, that is the truth that will set you free!!

In the Stillness

In the Stillness

www.jodiburke.com

When we are still we can hear our Soul.

 

It’s in the stillness of our own Soul that we find the courage to dare greatly.

     –  Simply topaz

 

In the stillness is where we find ourselves.

We need to go within to find our truth, love and light.

The outer world IS just a reflection of the inner world.

The inner world is where Consciousness is and all the dimensions of existence.

Breath, Be Quiet, Go Within and Feel the Stillness – Universes will open up………literally!!

Energy is Always Flowing

There are always signs from the Universe IF we are paying attention.

When we are greeted by a sign or synchronicity there is no longer the question – there is only the answer!

If we are energy – and we are – when we have put out a question to the Universe and do not come to conclusions with an answer, we are sending out a vibration and the Universe loves to support us, surprise us and over deliver.

It’s interesting the things we worry or fear about instead of knowing what we desire, setting clear intentions and moving in that directions without expectations and conclusions.

The flow of energy.

I have been struggling with some decisions lately in my life – it’s like I am at a fork in the road and it’s been draining and hard – because I have been trying to figure it out.  That in itself should tell me 🙂

But I started paying attention to signs and they were coming even in funny ways – how, when and where I least expected it!! 🙂

I chose the photo above as I just came back to Sayulita in Mexico – where I spent a couple of months earlier this year.  I walked down the beach yesterday to see these rocks and not only are the Inuk Shuks gone but so are many the rocks – if you have an urge in the moment – then Go For It as you never know what can happen after that.  As a Photographer a missed opportunity of creativity!!

Let go of thinking, come from the heart and follow what you love to do and be.

That is the only true way to live!

Create a fantastic day!!

What Are You Choosing??

What Are You Choosing??

www.jodiburke.com

Beach in Mexico

 

What are you choosing in your every day world?

Surrender lower vibrational forms of thinking that limitations are real, that you are not good enough, that you can’t see how.

We live in an infinite ocean of infinite possibilities and potential.

You are suppose to live, follow and love from your heart.  Believe in self.

Let the Universe know the how!

When we limit ourselves through our 5 senses to what is real or possible we have to remind ourselves that we do that through filters of lack, our beliefs, our points of view, programs, our perceptions and even our ego and that don’t always support us.

We forget that we are Consciousness that is One with the Source of all that is.

So by thinking and feeling I can’t, I’m not good enough, I don’t see etc then that is what the Universe responds to.

The Universe or otherwise known as the Field does not understand words or thoughts – it only understands vibrations which starts with a thought that leads to an emotion or feeling which creates a vibration.

The Universe always responds.

As you think, act and feel you will receive.

I am choosing Self Love, Love, Joy, Bliss, Gratitude, Passion, Health and Abundance.

What are you choosing?

Surviving vs Thriving

Surviving vs Thriving

Do you want to survive or thrive in your life?

Each moment we have is a choice – we get to choose how we feel, what we think and how we live our lives.  So what is the difference?

www.jodiburke.com

Feeling Alone?

Survival

  • choose the path of least resistance

  • settle in life

  • become part of the herd mentality

  • you blame outside circumstances or other people for things going wrong in your life

  • working a job you hate for a pay check

  • lie, cheat, steal or manipulate as you are not connected to the Universal energy or trusting of it

  • afraid to speak your mind or stand out or up for what you believe in (don’t really know what that is either)

  • you don’t listen to hear you listen to answer

  • in your head a lot trying to figure it out

  • don’t trust – very concrete in the 3D reality

  • change is scary

  • its usually about me (you)

www.jodiburke.com

Thriving Creates Dreams

Thriving

  •  know oneself or on the path of knowing oneself therefore one’s values and beliefs too

  •  In more states of Love, Joy, Bliss & Gratitude for your life and what you are choosing in it   knowing you are creating it ALL

  • you surround yourself with people who are doing, being and living the same way – higher vibe people

  •  you take care of yourself mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually 

  • you don’t come from a place of judgement, competition or needing to manipulate anyone as Love is a stronger vibe in your world and you love yourself and everyone as equals

  •  you know or at least are on the path of knowing how the Universe works 

  •  you do things and spend time doing things that you love doing and bring you joy or to help  make a difference in the world

  • maybe even you are becoming aware of the Matrix and getting out of it!! 🙂

    If Everything IS Energy – YOU are a Creator NOT a Victim –  it’s never to late to start thriving!!

Receiving

Receiving

Be Open to Receive not Closed

Receiving – how well are you at receiving?

Gifts?

Compliments?

Money?

New ideas or ways of doing things?

When we aren’t able to receive it’s like having a closed door that we don’t or can’t open – we are literally being closed off.

 The other night I was given a personal compliment, which I noticed I could not fully receive – you know the under comfortable feeling in the body, the blowing it off or laughing it off and not being able to say thank you as you don’t believe it or can’t see or feel it.

Now, at the same time I also took notice that 2, 5 or 10 years ago I would not have been able to receive any or most of it – so I’ve come a long way!

I took note of it and sat with it the next day – asking myself some questions – What was in the way of me from totally receiving?  What’s right about me that I’m not getting?  How could this shift easily and effortlessly?

If I am not able to fully receive in one area of my life, then I can’t in others as well.  If I couldn’t receive fully then I wasn’t shining my light fully either – this is where beliefs and programs come in aka ‘I’m not good enough.’

I also realized that I can’t see or perceive what someone else can.  I assume that they see what I see,  but who knows really what another sees.

By not being able to receive compliments I am diminishing their light as well by not acknowledging their choice for whatever reason.

Being able to receive say a compliment should be no harder than to hear ‘Please pass the plate of veggies”.

Thank you is the best response to btw.

www.jodiburke.com

Let the Universe Surprise You!

When we can easily and effortlessly receive even the small things in life and be grateful for them the Universe will keep giving us more and will surprise us – if we get out of our heads of how things should be!

The more we can receive for ourselves as in compliments the more we can show up as we are not hiding behind programs and thoughts like ‘I’m not good enough’.

We gotta stop squashing each other’s lights and start sharing and spreading the light – being open to receive is a great place.

Thank you for reading and sharing this!

How are you on receiving?

What could you do differently today to receive more?

And a BIG Thank you for my friend showing me where I still needed to grow and become more aware!!

Creating Art

Creating Art

Go Within into the Unknown

 

“It is not art in the professionalized sense about which I care, but that which is created sacredly, as a result of a deep inner experience, with all of oneself, and that becomes ‘art’ in time.”

                                                                              Alfred Stieglitz

Alfred was a Photographer in the late 1800’s early 1900’s – it’s incredible when you think about  what some people knew even back then about energy, meditation truly living.  It always comes back to you and what you are thinking and feeling inside.

Let go of the external reality to go within as they are proving we are living in a Universe which is a feed back loop for our thoughts and feelings – the environment is an extension of our mind.

We are way more love and powerful than we realize and our imagination is way more powerful than knowledge yet it starts from within!!  Awareness leads to Consciousness.

We are creators – we just need to truly embody that!

Set your intention on creating a magical day and being fully present in the moment – if you are not present then who’s life are you living??

Much Love & Gratitude

Jodi

Where Are YOU Putting Your Energy?

Where Are YOU Putting Your Energy?

Just like each rose is beautiful and unique – so are YOU – embrace it and love it.

Allow yourself to open up and blossom.

Something to think about – just sayin!!
